Swansea manager Michael Laudrup says he remains keen to sign another striker before the transfer window closes on Monday.

And Laudrup admits that West Brom's Peter Odemwingie and Getafe forward Alvaro Vazquez are both the sort of players who he is looking to acquire.

Odemwingie has been regularly linked with the Swans since the start of the summer and reports in Spain claim the Welsh side have submitted a £2.5m bid for Spain U21 player Vazquez.

Laudrup said: "I don't want to go into details too much. I have told you many times the position I am looking for and the player I need, someone with different qualities and characteristics.

"Vazquez is a young player and a little different. He is a young forward who plays wide and he has the characteristics we were talking about, like Odemwingie.

"I imagine that's why his name came up, because they both fit into the profile that we are looking for.

"I can't say that we are putting in bids, just that we are talking to different persons and we have alternative possibilities.

"The only thing I can confirm is that we have nothing near completion. On the other hand, when do you know you are close? You never know."
